CatholicCare is a rewarding place to work. 

Relationships are at the heart of why CatholicCare exists, and our relationships with our staff are equally valued.

As a values-based organisation, we attract staff who share our commitment to helping vulnerable people in the community and our passion for delivering high quality services that help our clients to achieve ‘Life to the Full’.

We enjoy a collaborative workplace culture where teamwork is highly valued.

CatholicCare is committed to:

  • client and child safety - we carry out Police Record and Working With Children checks for all staff and volunteers to ensure the safety of the people we serve.
  • diversity - we value our multi-cultural and multi-denominational staff
  • workplace safety – we aim to provide a workplace that is safe and healthy for all staff and volunteers


To attract and retain high calibre staff we offer employee benefits including:

  • salary packaging - as CatholicCare enjoys Public Benevolent Institution tax status, our employees can reduce their taxable income through salary packaging and thereby increase their take-home salary 
  • flexible work and leave arrangements to maintain work-life balance
  • learning and development activities to develop skills and knowledge to deliver quality services to our clients 
  • regular employee climate surveys to assess engagement with our mission, values and business plans and to obtain employee feedback on CatholicCare as a place to work
  • a confidential employee assistance program with an independent service provider to assist staff and their immediate family in a situation or crisis
